ALAMEDA — Trustees with the Alameda Unified School District will consider declaring the district “a safe haven” for all students at its Tuesday meeting in response to reports that racism and intolerance have risen following the national presidential election.

 

The draft resolution calls on trustees to prevent to the “maximum extent possible” agents from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement visiting campuses without prior written approval from Superintendent Sean McPhetridge.

 

The resolution also would give McPhetridge the authority “to protect the data and identities of any student, family member, or school employee who may be adversely affected” by actions of the incoming Trump administration.

 

The proposed resolution follows state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson releasing a letter Dec. 21 that encourages all California public schools to be declared “safe havens” for students and their parents.

 

Torlakson also urged public school officials to remind families about existing laws that protect students’ records from questions about their immigration status.

 

“Unfortunately, since the presidential election, reports of bullying, harassment, and intimidation of K-12 students based on immigration status, religious, or ethnic identification are on the rise,” Torlakson said in the letter, which was distributed to county and school district superintendents, charter school administrators, and principals.

 

On Tuesday, Alameda trustees will just consider the resolution. They are expected to vote on it at a future, unspecified date.

More than 72 languages are spoken in the Alameda school district, approximately 11 percent of its 9,500 students are immigrants, and 17 percent are English language learners, according to a background report on the resolution.

 

The draft resolution, which was submitted by McPhetridge, asks trustees to reaffirm their “focus on promoting and elevating tolerance, inclusiveness, and kindness to all students, families, and staff,” as well as their commitment to ensuring a safe learning environment for all.

 

School district trustees will meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 2263 Santa Clara Ave., Alameda.
